The pair is tied with England’s Sam Walker (70) with overall 36-hole totals of 5-under 135.
"I played very well in Moscow (two weeks ago), but the only thing I didn't do was hole any putts," said Walker, who had a share of second place after Thursday's first round. "If I'd holed even a few more there I'd have been comfortably in the top five, but I had to settle for ninth.”
James Kingston (68) is alone in fourth at 4-under 136.
